Snow and dangerous wind chills today

(January 17, 2016) – An arctic front tracking across the region today will bring very cold conditions along with increasing lake effect snow showers.

A winter weather advisory is in effect for southwest lower Michigan and portions of far north central Indiana for the combination of lake effect snow accumulations of 3 to 6 inches through Monday morning, and wind chills as cold as 15 below zero tonight into Monday morning. The greatest snow accumulations are expected generally along and north of the Toll Road.

Additional light accumulations are possible Monday afternoon into Monday night. West winds will increase to 15 to 20 mph today with gusts to 25 mph resulting in some blowing and drifting of the snow with reduced visibilities.

A wind chill advisory is in effect for much of the remainder of northern Indiana and northwest Ohio tonight into Monday morning with low temperatures away from lake effect clouds dropping to around zero and wind chills as cold as 20 below zero. If you must be out through Monday morning, be prepared with your winter survival kit in the event you become stranded (due to the weather or even vehicle breakdowns).
